the scrutiny on the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi but that may be ending now. last night an independent report by the accountability review board issued a devastating critique of the state department saying "grossly inadequate security on the day of the attack and in the months leading up to it and a reliance on local militias left u.s. diplomats vulnerable in libya. without any meaningful defense on september 11th leading to tragic results for ambassador chris stevens and three other americans that were killed. report absolves the pentagon of any plablame." secretary hillary clinton responded in a letter to house and senate committee saying she accepts everyone of the panel's recommendations and has taken steps to improve security at high-threat posts. "to fully honor those we lost we must better protect those still serving to advance our nation's vital interests and values overseas." still, not the way clinton wanted to leave the state department and it certainly adds a blemish to her record which had been pretty stellar. due to her illness she won't be testifying on be
